WARNING for iPad 2 Users: there is a bug in the current version of Frog Jig that causes it to crash when you tap the custom puzzle camera button in the Select Puzzle view! A fix is in process and will be available soon.
Frog Jig is a jigsaw puzzle in a box - or rather an iPad! Frog Jig brings you an authentic puzzle experience - the only thing you miss out on is loosing pieces!
REALISTIC PUZZLE: When the photo is cut into a puzzle the pieces fall and pile up at the bottom of the screen. Like real pieces they land randomly and even upside-down! When you move a piece from the pile into the work area they stick, but until stuck they are loose like a real pile of pieces. If you rotate your iPad the pile of pieces will fall to the new bottom edge, bouncing and flipping into a new pile. To shuffle the pieces without rotating just shake your iPad.
PIECE CONTROL: Touch and drag pieces around the screen, tap a piece to flip it over. To spin a piece touch it with one finger then rotate a second finger around it until it is in the desired orientation. For less exact control you can double tap to rotate the piece clockwise to the nearest 90 degree angle. Flick a piece downwards and it will fall into the pile, flicking up will toss the piece into the work area where it will stick. You can also triple tap a piece to release it from the work area and it will fall back into the pile.
MULTIPLE PHOTOS: There are 20 puzzle sets available for Frog Jig, each of which contains three different photos in a particular theme. Two sample sets come free with the app and the other nine can be purchased for $.99 each.

PHOTO ALBUM: Select any photo from your photo library to use as your puzzle!
COMPLETED PUZZLE GALLERY: When you complete a puzzle from one of the official puzzle sets the photo is added to your Gallery where you can view the photos as a slideshow or copy them to your Photo Album!

Fixed a bug that caused saved puzzles to be lost if a second interruption occurred.
Fixed a bug that allowed the navigation pop-up to stay open after choosing a custom puzzle.
Good game. But I have the following suggestions ...
The half-finished puzzle made from the photo gallery is not always saved, and I ended up restarting the puzzle game numerous times. Sometimes the partly done puzzle was there the next day, sometimes it was gone after exiting the game for a few minutes. I tried various ways to determine the cause, but found no discernible pattern to help me avoid the disappearance of an unfinished jigsaw puzzle. I must emphasize that the bug did not exist in puzzles that came with the game. It only affected puzzles created from pictures in the photo gallery.
Apart from fixing this bug, it would be nice if the developer creates a wider variety of shapes for the jigsaw pieces in the next update.
I recommend this purchase for jigsaw puzzle on an iPad platform.
It's great to see an actual jigsaw puzzle for the iPad, rather than just another slide puzzle. It's nice that you can use your own pictures for the puzzles, and that the puzzle size can be adjusted for difficulty. Takes a little practice to be able to manipulate the pieces, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy. There just needs to be a way to anchor the assembled puzzle so it doesn't move when placing the last few pieces.
